1) Give an example of a commercial product that satisfies each of the 7 laws of sustainable design, and,

2) Give an example of a commerical product that embodies all of as many of the 7 laws. For 1) and 2) make sure you site the source or reference.

these are the laws:

1. Law of Availability

Prescribes that design, to be sustainable, must select input resources (material or energy) from bresources that are readily available

2. Law of Harmony

Prescribes that design, to be sustainable, must be in harmony with its intended function and/or its environment

3. Law of Knowledge

Prescribes that design, to be sustainable, must be based on solid fundamental knowledge of science, aesthetics, etc.

4. Law of Reuse

Prescribes that design, to be sustainable, must reuse or recycle resource (material or energy) that serves as output by the design

5. Law of Symbiosis

Prescribes that design, to be sustainable, may incorporate the integral linking of two or more components such that each component both derives and supplies benefits from and to the other

6. Law of Peers

Prescribes that design, to be sustainable, must benefit from the insights and inputs from peers

7. Law of Community

Prescribes that design, to be sustainable, must be integrated into the daily life of the community.
